Abstract By 1966, disposing of solid wastes in the City of Virginia Beach, Virginia had become a critical problem. At the same time the number of residents and tourists was increasing each year, thus requiring that more solid waste be disposed of, land values were also rising. This latter factor dictated against using land suitable for residential, commercial, or recreational purposes for solid waste disposal. In addition, the presence of high water table (5-8 ft) makes deep pit excavation impractical. The concept was advanced that an existing dump located on relatively inexpensive land be converted into a recreational site by building a 65-foot hill of solid waste. Provision would be made for a 10,000-seat amphitheater, a soap box derby ramp, a fresh-water lake, and parking facilities. Details are presented on design and construction techniques, operating procedures, equipment used, problems encountered, water and gas sampling methods, economic factors, and public reaction.
Highlights Notes Presents details on building a 65-foot hill of solid waste in an existing sanitary landfill and recreational facilities thereon.
